How many times did I photograph the Flatiron Building? A lot. The reason was that I walked past it to get to the subway. So I always passed it on my way to and from work. In those days, I would often carry a tripod and medium format (TLR) with me to work. On my […]

I tried to divide the city up into locations for your convenience. Still lots of overlapping.
I rolled up my pants, took off my socks, put back my sneakers, and walked with Weber along the shoreline. He was interested in the large of amount of horseshoe crabs (all dead) that were there. And kept picking them up to see where the seagulls had feasted. They looked like big bugs to me. […]
Out at Coney again with Weber. These are some productive days, I think, for both of us. I get to roll up my trousers and wade in the Atlantic, and come home with sand in my shoes; and I get the introductions that Matt makes; he seems to know just about everyone that’s ever worked […]
Central Park Prints by Dave Beckerman Poet’s Walk, Central Park in 1994. Shot with a large-format view camera during a freezing rain. This remains the most popular print I sell. Frankly, I almost didn’t take this photograph because it was so cold and the film holders were getting wet. Just as I was about to […]
I actually did this one as a “giga” photo. Handheld, I was able to take five or six shots; and then “stitch” ’em together. I didn’t know his work at all before seeing his mosaic murals at the 86th street Q line station. I’m lucky, because one entrance is on 2nd avenue and 83rd street, […]
2nd Avenue Subway – 86th Street. Q. Train Lou Reed by Chuck Close.
More playing with mom’s music and the mosaics by Chuck Close at the 86th street subway station. Mostly just to get used to how to do some technical stuff with iMovie. If you know the name of the piece – let me know. Maybe there’s an app for identifying music. I remember that day very […]
This was done in December, 2004. Same location as “Poet’s Walk Print” but with yes – a digital camera and a long lens to give the sense of compression. Dave, Wow! It just arrived today. It is even more beautiful than I remembered from the website. Just gave it to my husband and we are […]
Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park is probably the favorite place to go ice-skating in New York. This photo won FIRST PRIZE in the 2008 Central Park Winter Photo Contest. It was a pretty big contest with about 100,000 votes cast, and then a jury which included one of my favorite photographers – Bruce […]
Photographed with medium format camera around 1995. Print can go very large.
The Dancing Girls fountain in the Formal Gardens of Central Park. B&W photograph by Dave Beckerman. Frozen droplets. Backlit and striking.
